Time for Challenge Fun

Today I decided to dive into a variety of challenges with my creations.  There are so many amazing challenges out there ... I just want to play them ALL ... but of course there's not enough time in my day for that to happen so I've combined a few in the two cards I have to share with you below.

This first creation uses the SKETCH from this week's sketch challenge at SCS, the FOCUS IMAGE which is a pyramid twist offered as a freebie over on the challenges of CDAC by Nicecrane Designs and the RECIPE is for the challenge at Joan's Gardens where were are to use striped paper, button or embellishment, heart & a bow.

 I just love how this creation came together!  
A few other challenges this creation qualifies for are:

Cute Card Thursday - Monochrome
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes

My second creation uses the MAIN FOCUS image from Delicious Doodles Store (two images ... Heart & Lovely Lillies) which I combined using Word 2010, the THEME is Lace for this week's challenge at Shelly's Images.

A few other challenges this creation fits are:
 Pals Paper Arts - Valentine
Southern Girls - Lovey Dovey
Stamp Insanity - Let it all hang out! (lily hangs outside the heart)

 THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my creations.  If you have ANY QUESTIONS on my cards, images, products used ... please just leave me a comment and I'll get back to you!

More SNOW coming tomorrow ... guess I'd better get my errands run today ... have a great day!  Stay Safe!!

Hugs,  Darlene
